Plai essential oil, Thailand Cool, spicy-green, peppery stimulating aroma. Anti-inflammatory, cooling; muscle relaxant and joint pains. Plai is of the same family as Ginger but different properties and more intense actions. Thai massage therapists use this oil to combat joint and muscle problems. It blends well with Bergamot, Lime, Lavender, and Sandalwood.
